Ted Baker in general isn't an insta-kop right? Or have I been screwing up passing all the shirts I've been seeing? There's a few levels yeah?
Saw a rack come out at a shop today full of Ascot Chang but passed because they didn't have size tags being, I assume, bespoke. That and they just didn't seem worth it.
Also if any LA guys need a lifetime supply of various white Zegna shirts sized 16.5, PM me and I'll tell ya where. There had to be at least 10, with a few random patterns thrown in. Same shop I did a kindness to someone by pairing up some canali orphans. Come to think of it, the pants were flat front, and I think the suit was a 50. Fuck maybe I'm going to have to go back for that. Bit of a stain on the coat though, and I'm getting tired of dry cleaning.
Anyways enough whining, a paltry touch of bragging now. My sole grab for the day, which miraculously appeared after I'd been thinking of buying one-
In the sun you can almost make out alternating navy and purple tones. Material tag's been cut off, but I believe this particular run was from the 1980's and was in cotton? Haven't measured it, but I'm fairly certain it's a long, which is exactly what I need. Nice little entry into the knit tie world for $1.99. Sometimes the little things will make your day.
I've got this exact same tie. It's probably the most versatile in the stable and definitely gets the most wear, good find! I generally snatch up any wool knits in pleasing colors that I see....that aren't riddled with moth holes, as they seem to go with just about everything.
